2020 Fantasy Outlook
Loaisiga began 2019 as the Yankees' fifth starter but pitched only two short outings before being sent down to the minors. He was then shuttled between the International League and the big club before an injury to James Paxton appeared to open the door for Loaisiga to string together a few big-league starts. Instead, the right-hander landed on the injured list himself with a strained right rotator cuff and was used as a reliever and opener when he returned to the Yankees over three months later. Loaisiga ended the regular season with a subpar 4.55 ERA over 31.2 innings, though he demonstrated a solid swing-and-miss arsenal, registering a 14.2% swinging-strike rate and 26.6 K%. The 25-year-old's fastball touches 97 mph and his spin rate of 2,424 rpm is far above average, but he may be best suited to a relief role after missing significant time with shoulder injuries each of the last two seasons.

Pitches well in spot start
PNew York Yankees
August 5, 2020
Loaisiga allowed one earned run on three hits and a walk while striking out three across 2.1 innings in the second game of the Yankees' doubleheader against the Phillies on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.
ANALYSIS
Loaisiga was used as a starter given the doubleheader, though the team still limited his workload to 51 pitches. The lone run he surrendered came in the second inning, when he allowed an RBI single to Andrew Knapp. Loaisiga will likely return to a multi-inning reliever role.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
What Loaisiga brings to the table in terms of skills is impressive, but it's tough to overlook the fact that he's now 24 and has never thrown more than 80.2 innings in a season. He appeared to be making a seamless transition to the big leagues despite skipping the Triple-A level, posting a 1.93 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 18:8 K:BB in his first three starts with the Yankees after making the jump from Double-A Trenton. However, after his June 2 outing, Loaisiga was optioned and quickly diagnosed with right shoulder inflammation. He was shut down from throwing for close to a month, and by the time he was cleared to start a rehab assignment in mid-August, there wasn't enough time for him to build back up as a starter. It's easy to see the talent when Loaisiga is on the field as he throws 96 mph and has two other potential plus offerings (slider and changeup) and solid command, but without the innings, it's impossible to get too excited.
